Football is a language I embraced from a very young age. Growing up in a football-centric family provided a strong foundation for me to pursue my goals, despite facing numerous challenges as an Assyrian in Iraq. These experiences instilled in me a deep appreciation for all aspects of life. Relocating to the United States presented numerous opportunities to both study and play the sport I love. 


My journey led me to the youth national team, eventually allowing me to play in Europe for two seasons and in Australia. I gained invaluable insights from playing under coaches in South America, Europe, and the Middle East, which profoundly shaped my football philosophy. 

I believe player development is essential for young athletes, with a strong emphasis on the technical aspects of the game and instilling good habits from an early age. It is crucial to provide players the opportunity to express themselves and think creatively, becoming problem solvers during training sessions and matches. As a coach, fostering these qualities is a priority in my teaching approach.
